    Yes, I think it's mean to pick apart the ad of someone who does not speak good English. Maybe instead of picking it apart, offer to help him/her correct it so it reads better.


    I understand when it's an ad by someone who clearly speaks English but uses poor grammar, bad pictures, and can't be bothered to learn the proper spelling of the breed of horse they are trying to sell.

    I don't think this is one of them.

    Shouldn't that be "doesn't speak English well"? Lighten up. Let's hope this horse gets a better situation soon. People who have horses need to educate themselves about horses at least enough to place a promising ad. The grammar doesn't matter.

    Someone needs to get pictures...and honestly, if it is a matter of poor English, maybe tell/help them with a proper ad.

    If it is a matter of having that poor of a grasp on the English language I would think the first portion of the advertisement would not be so clear.

    I would guess the blue is dark hair having grown in on an old saddle sore.
